4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

I went to Ajanta with little bit of apprehension as some of the reviews were really bad. But my colleague wanted to stay in this hotel as it was most convenient for her and I did not want to inconvenience her. The first look was not very impressive. But I found the hotel quite ok. I was given choices of two rooms and I promptly chose the 6th floor one with sea view. I could see a partial view of the terrace also which seemed quite nice. However I did not have time to go there as I was there on a hectic business trip only for a night. The room was neat and clean. Bed linens felt clean too. Toilet was also quite ok. I found the staff polite and very helpful. Whatever help I asked for from analgesic to a cab, was provided promptly and with a smile. However I missed an electric kettle with tea/coffee provision which I feel is a very basic amenity.

Room Tip: Rooms with sea view on higher floors

We stayed here for 2 nights. This is the oldest and dirtiest hotel I have ever been in. The toilet seat was broken. The bathroom didn't look like it had been cleaned in a very long time. For hot water, apparently you have to turn on a switch which we were never informed of. The phone doesn't connect you to the reception.

Further the air conditioning system is very loud and the beds are uncomfortable. The decor looked like it was from the 1960s.

The hotel staff was extremely unprofessional. I witnessed them accuse a guest of stealing an iron even though the guest had never ordered one to her room. She even opened her suitcase. It appeared the staff was incompetent and unaware of how to run a hotel.

I along with a colleague had stayed overnight on a business trip on December 23-24, 2011 at Hotel Ajanta on Juhu Tara Road, Mumbai. The hotel is well located…quite close to the famed Juhu beach of Mumbai and that's sadly its only merit.

The entrance was on the main road itself, it lead to a long corridor, which brought me to a shady, dimly lit reception area. I was allotted supposedly a suite, the Tulip room (# 405; tariff: Rs.6000/- net on special corporate discount basis) on the fourth floor…the room was biggish but the amenities were awful. The bed-sheets & pillow covers were stained, the towels were stringy on overuse and the blanket was frayed at the ends as it was quite old. The toilet floor and the wash basin counter had dirty stains. There was no tea/ coffee making facility in the room and surprisingly not even a bottle of mineral water by courtesy from the hotel!

After the business meeting we returned to the hotel late evening expecting to catch a good nap as we were to rush to the airport in the early morning next day. At about 1.15 AM, all hell suddenly broke loose in our floor…jolted from the sleep I initially thought there was a police raid, which is common in cheap Mumbai hotels doubling as brothels as I heard great commotion with many men & women shouting at the top of their voices. As I looked through the door's magic eye, I found a large group of college students creating a raucous having arrived at the hotel in the ungodly hours. They ran around the corridor, played music with ear splitting volume, slammed the doors shut many times and even kicked on my door thinking the room to belong to their group members…there was no one from the hotel to caution them about other boarders staying in the same floor!!! The racket continued till about 3 AM. This was the most terrible experience in a hotel I have ever stayed. Hotel Ajanta should be avoided at any cost!!!
